ResNet STC is an annual conference hosted by ResNet, Inc. for IT professionals, students, staff, and vendors to discuss and collaborate on technology support in higher education. The conference has been running since 1992 and focuses on educational and campus technologies. The goal is to improve the technology landscape in academia and prepare students for success in the digital age.
The Student Technology Conference is the only conference that deals exclusively with student technologies in academic institutions. The conference is held at a college or university every summer and brings together administrators, technologists, and specialists from over 150 colleges and universities worldwide to discuss and support student technologies.
At the Student Technology Conference, you’ll have the opportunity to learn from and network with attendees from all areas of student technology support, including help desks, instructional technology centers, media checkout centers, event support, maker spaces and other student-focused academic technologies. This mix of experience allows for valuable knowledge-sharing through presentations, panel discussions, and roundtable conversations. And don’t forget the casual and social atmosphere of the conference, where you can build relationships that last long after the event is over.
Before the main conference begins, attendees may choose to attend one or more Professional Development Seminars (PDS). PDS sessions are more in-depth, run for either a half- or whole-day, and are led by experts in their field.
The Student Technology Conference contains a Sponsor Fair which offers a unique opportunity for vendors to showcase the different technologies and services which they can offer to academic institutions. Many attendees have brief conversations with each vendor to establish contacts, while others have in-depth discussions about vendor products and services.
